, the political power, i think as senator john mccain said, it is elections, elections, elections, that john boehner will see, as well, there is a need to pass immigration reform. we didn't get into the logistics of what the house strategy would be. >> ryan grim is the momentum building with cantor's flip-flop, does that create more momentum? >> sure, i mean, it certainly moves one end of the debate. republicans now more or less have to be for the dream act or they're considered not part of it, anywhere near the reasonable conversation, but you know, look, if they want to put the dream act up alone and push is forward i imagine that democrats would say okay, fine. we'll do the dream act if that is all we can get. but you know, republicans are fooling themselves if they think that the dream act is going to be enough to get comprehensive immigration reform. you know, democrats are going to want legalization for everybody who is here who has not committed a crime, et cetera, et cetera, in order to give the republicans what they want in the comprehensive bill. so just the dream act is not going

are john mccain and sendly graham are so you ubiquitous? >> they want to block everything. what they're doing now is the equivalent of being on the schoolyard playing ball and they say we're not playing until billy gives me some of his ice cream. >> john: it's the screw you guys i'm going home. why are the sunday talk shows so awful? >> that's a great question. because they want access. they want the big names. it's all about ratings. let's be honest. that's what it's about. >> cenk: but does john mccain own a jet pac that he goes to these things every weekend. >> john mccain has nothing to do. >> john: he has 19 houses, he has plenty to do. >> john mccain? >> john: yes. >> i prefer lindsey graham and his preference for lebanese men. >> john: karl rove mike huck which called his new group repulsive. michelle malkin said rove is doubling down on stupid. that's in defense of the tea party, and donald trump called rove a total loser. if the enemy of my enemy is my friend what if the enemy of my enemy is karl rove? anyone? >> i'll just say this puts fox news in a really awkward position.

in the middle of his term. remember, he tried, as did a lot of democrats and john mccain to get immigration reform through in 2007. and that's when the backlash grew. and then when the bush administration was deemed a failure, which many of us believed broadly that it was, a lot of conservatives said that's true. and instead of trying to moderate the party then, they said the problem was this compassionate conservative guy was too liberal. so they pulled the party way over to the right. the problem they have now is the tea party folks are the folks who kind of got them there in 2010. and it's as if the republicans are saying well, we needed your votes to drive this car to the country club, but we really don't want to let you inside the country club. so they're courting a kind of class warfare in the republican party over the next couple of years. >> e.j., one of the things i think you have written about more eloquently than anybody else is the idea of -- you've written ambitiously i should say about the idea of civility, that we can have reasonable disagreements about even very profound dif
